Perfection. I absobuletly LOVE this! You flawlessly summarized a tale that spanned decades.Reviewer: Mirage Signed
Ah yes, this is what could have happened if Brigitte had been succesful. Very dark. Lovely.Reviewer: Mirage Signed
This is one moment (okay, one of many) where words just can not do justice. I love the raw emotion in Parker's questions, the self sacrifice on Jarod's part, and the final line simply ties together a beautiful and yet twisted (but what else could we expect from the Centre?) tale. Thanks for sharing! And thanks to Mistress Jacci (haha, I said I would) for pointing out this fic.Reviewer: Mirage Signed
I clicked on the "random story" on the front page and I'm thrilled that I did.
You describe Parker- oops - Melanie and Jarod as having this perfect little life, cozy and safe and yet, that perfect white picket fence is a prison of sorts. And yet, she tries, I get the vibe that she's trying to be the woman he wants. Jarod, of course, the Great Fixer of all Problems doesn't realize that some things are beyond repair and some people don't want to be saved.
One, I applaud you for stepping outside the box and painting an imperfect picture of their life and two, I can't wait to read the rest!Reviewer: Mirage Signed
Amazing. This story sorta has a gray feel about it, as a fog has settled over the dysfunctional duo and refuses to life. The booze and then pills- which Jarod points out she should take with water.
I quite like that Jarod is questioning his motives. He's loves her, she's cared for and not in prison but I'm not so sure that she's happy but I imagine that he feels he's within his rights just the same.
I love this story.Reviewer: Mirage Signed
Ah, lovely line: "She knows she has no excuse not to feel as complete as the picture" and oh, Jarod, Jarod. He keeps trying, wants to really make it work.
Hmm, the gun. I have a bad feeling about that but with the appearance of Lyle and Tanaka, perhaps the gun will be useful in coming chapters and - speaking of coming chapters-- where is the rest?Reviewer: Mirage Signed
Great job! That was very well written.Reviewer: Mirage Signed
Zoe, Zoe, Zoe, wow, I hate her in this fic. Great job!Reviewer: Mirage Signed
Good job! This was very well written and so cute. Your story was not horrendous, it was great.Reviewer: Mirage Signed
LOVE IT! Pay back is a bitch! I can't tell you how nice it is to see the pain in the arse get his for a change. Awesome.
Author's Response: *smirks* yeah, quite a change, isn't it?
Yay! The "tormenting" continues.
Author's Response: indeed it does
Love it! I have wondered the same things about Catherine. Why in the hell fake her death right there for her to daughter to witness?Reviewer: Mirage Signed
I am so delighted that you finally gave us the final piece of this timeless story. I've been looking forward to reading the ending for quite some time and now I can with certaintly that I've enjoyed your story from start to wonderful finish. I hope to read more from you.Reviewer: Mirage Signed
Great job. The characters were very much in character and Parker as stubborn as ever. Incredible rescue. Very well written.Reviewer: Mirage Signed
No harsh judgments here, Spectra. You did an excellent job with this. It's very well written, very lovely and conscise. I can't wait to read the next bit.
Author's Response: Thank you for all your reviews! You really brightened my day.
Splendid! This could easily be a scene from the actual show and that last bit:"Don't worry, we'll get your kids back."- Gave me chills. Very touching and that is such a Jarod sort of thing to say.Reviewer: Mirage Signed
Haha, now that- oh, my- that was brilliant. Hilarious. I could imagine the entire scene as if I was there with them. You have a firm grasp of the characters, of the show and you write extremely well- so well in fact, that I'm going to search around to see if you wrote anything else.Reviewer: Mirage Signed
I know she's sometimes portrayed as "the all powerful, heartless ice queen" but she hurts like everyone else and like anyone else, she can be pushed right over the edge. I lvoe that Sydney was there for her. Sweet but not gooey. Good job!Reviewer: Mirage Signed
Wow! Well written and tragic but powerful. And True.
How about a part two where Jarod beats Lyle to death for this? After he saves Parker's life, of course. ;-)
Reviewer: Mirage Signed
Oh no! That was incredibly tragic but well written and that song...I still listen to it every once and a while.Reviewer: Mirage Signed
Very tragic but so very beautiful and perfectly written. It's so like not to realize until it's too late...and so sad!Reviewer: Mirage Signed
Oh my...wow. I so like this excellent piece! And of course the rumour mill that is the Centre will churn out lie after lie...all but one lie, eh? Very nice!Reviewer: Mirage Signed
Ooh, I really like this, love the supportive/father figure that Sydney is and the way Lyle stepped in. Great job.Reviewer: Mirage Signed
Oh wow, great job Felicity. Yeah, this could be Syd/J or Parker/Syd, even a few other pairings come to mind. I love it, love the emotions you conveyed, the simply waiting, waiting and watching as a loved one drifts to death and whatever awaits us there...so very nicely written. A definite 10!Reviewer: Mirage Signed
Amazing. I simply love the interaction, subtlety, the nonverbal communication between Parker and Sydney. Magnificent piece here, a must-read and a definite ten.Reviewer: Mirage Signed
